Call For Papers

Call for Papers
The Seventh World Universities Forum on 9-10 January, 2014 is held at the University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal. As in previous years, the 2014 World Universities Forum will feature sessions on a breadth of topics relevant to the university and its possibilities. Higher education has long had a special relationship with democracy, both as a mechanism for the promotion of democratic society and as a means for democratic equity of opportunity. Recent developments have only explicated the importance of this relationship. For example, university students and faculty continue to play essential roles in today’s democracy movements. At the same time, access to universities and other higher education institutions is diminishing in countries around the world. In some locations, rising fees are reducing access while elsewhere education systems are physically unable to accommodate burgeoning demand. Given its timely importance, the WUF hopes to initiate a conversation on democracy and higher education, engaging the promise and perils it faces in an era of dramatic change.

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, roundtables or colloquia are invited addressing topics in one of the following themes:
• Teaching and Learning
• Research and Knowledge Formation
• University Administration
• The University and the Community

The final deadline for proposal submission is 7 November 2013. Please visit http://ontheuniversity.com for more information on submitting your proposal, future deadlines, and registering for the conference.

Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposals for virtual presentations may be submitted at any time, up to the start of the conference. All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) may also submit their written papers for publication in the refereed Journal of the World Universities Forum.
